France marked the 70th anniversary of D-Day today, with a tribute ceremony featuring costumed re-enactors. The Normandy landings, the largest seaborne invasion in history, restored the French Republic, and helped us win WWII. My Uncle Ed won France's Croix de Guere for heroism, but never talked about it.
All I know is that it was for a secret mission in Normandy that outsmarted the
Nazis. I'll always be so proud of him!

They never talked about it. My father never talked about Korea, other
than blaming his hearing on it.

I've been watching documentary programs on PBS regarding this. I
really appreciate what our service people accomplished.
